Marmot race reports: Summer Roundup Half Marathon & Barr Trail Mountain Race

I've had two great weekends, with two great but challenging races. Last weekend, I ran in part 2 of the Triple Crown of Running - the Summer Roundup Half Marathon, now located in the stupendous Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Today, I ran in the Barr Trail Mountain Race, the…

Bruised But Not Broken, Often Gasping Marmot

Last we caught up a few weeks ago, I was whining about the smoke messing up my PR attempt at Leadville Marathon… What has this marmot been up to since then? Well the mountains kept calling to me, so the weekend after Leadville I headed a bit further south for the race with the most eye-candy-per- mile, the San Juan Solstice. 50miles up and down some mountains, playing along the Continental Divide for hours, what more could I ask for?!…

New Summer Roundup Race Adventures

 The second leg of the Triple Crown of Running was the inaugural running of the Summer  Roundup Half Marathon in Cheyenne State Park.

In the past, the second leg has always been the shortest race of the three, and the only one that varies, but lengthening this race to a half marathon on rugged terrain , despite my inner whining , made sense on many levels. Many runners where in pursuit of the 3:30:00 cutoff to prove their…

Summer Roundup!

I'd like to be able to write an inspiring blog post about being super disciplined about training, despite life throwing out everything it has at me to keep me from my runs. I'd like to brag about how lack of sleep, physical exhaustion, and lack of time simply made me even more determined to get out there and get it done. I'd like to tell you that nothing is more important to me than sticking to my training plan and nothing comes between me and my running!

Sadly, I am not that person,…

Easy Logistics on Pikes Peak

Summer is the busiest time for sure in my chosen profession !

That is why having Pikes Peak in my backyard is such a luxury for me since life/work balance is the most challenging this time of year.

Monday, with a rare morning off from work, I made a rather spontaneous choice to ascend the Pikes Peak,arriving at the first shuttle of the day at 6 am (and a nice visit with my friends Daryl and Donna) to start off the Ascent with a trip up the incline steps. 

As I…

Slow Return from the Braided Marmot

What happens when you lose your focus and balance for half a second when you are hiking?  You end up sliding down a hill feet first, busting your face open and breaking your shoulder in four places.  What started as a nice hike in December up to a hut outside Leadville with my husband ended up a little different than we had planned.  I lost my balance as I turned around after saying something to Brad and next thing I know I was hauling it down the hill – slam, crash, ouch! Brad slid down the…

40 Is The New 30

Don't look at your watch don't look at your watch. Just try to keep Emily (workout buddy from the Sunrise Striders training group! Hi Emily!) in sight for as long as it feels 'comfortable'. The pace doesn't matter. DON'T. LOOK. AT. YOUR. WATCH. Just get to the top of the hill without red-lining! Stay…
